University of Regina Three Minute Thesis (3MT®)

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia.  Students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance. 3MT is not an exercise in trivialising or "dumbing-down" research, but challenges students to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience. 

At the U of R, 3MT is part of an effort to provide students with an opportunity to develop their oral communication and presentation skills.

This year, the final will be in March, 2018
